A Warren resident was arrested on June 2 after marijuana was found in a cookie tin at her residence.

Tyler County Sheriff's Deputy went down County Road 1325 in Warren for a welfare check on Cheryl Gibson of Warren after witnesses reported Gibson and her husband had been fighting.
According to Phil Ryan with the Tyler County Sheriff's Department, while deputies were on the scene, Gibson decided to leave the residence for the night with her daughter and as they were exiting the Deputies noticed a Danish cookie tin on the ground near the vehicle Gibson would be driving.

"When the deputy picked up the tin, a metal on metal noise could be heard which is odd because a tin like that usually has cookies in it," Ryan said. "It was opened and it had a green leafy substance known to be marijuana as well as drug paraphernalia such as grinders and rolling papers."

Gibson claimed sole ownership of the marijuana and was arrested and transported to the Sheriff's office.

She was charged with Possession of Marijuana.
